Theology of Transformation

Oxford University Press

In this chapter the nature of traditional, pre-modern cosmology is explored in more depth, including the Eucharistic controversy in which the effects of the new scientific thinking began to become evident. The nature of the first scientific revolution is set out, including the place of new technologies in the growth of its influence. The emergence of Modern Theology at the University of Berlin is examined together with the rise of Idealism and other kinds of response to Kant’s critical philosophy. Advances in contemporary science are also explored which produces an integrated paradigm of the mind-body-world relation which can be compared with a pre-modern paradigm of the ‘enchanted universe’ and the dualistic paradigm of Newtonian materialism.

Keywords:   Luther, Zwingli, theology and history, Eucharistic controversy, Holy Spirit, Theology in the World, mind-body paradigm, materialism
